The bird that sips nectar from flowers is the hummingbird. This bird is native to North America, South America, and Central America. The smallest hummingbird is known as a bee hummingbird, and weighs less than a pound. Despite the tiny size of the bird overall, even the bigger birds are pretty small so that they can get to the nectar, they can beat their wings over fifty times a minute.
This is where the hummingbird gets its name. That fast beats per minute creates a high pitched humming noise that comes from their wings, and thus the name “hummingbird” was given to the birds. They can be brightly colored or grey and dull in coloration, depending on the gender of the bird.
